I found out recently that my photographer will be 7 months pregnant at the time of our wedding. In fact, ours will be the last wedding she does before the baby arrives. Don't get me wrong, I was ecstatic for her, but now I'm a little concerned.
I LOVE this woman's pictures. The price is great for the professional and creative quality of the pictures. I have no reason other than this to reconsider using her. But the question is, what if complications from the pregnancy arise that prevent her from shooting our wedding? I'm mostly concerned that something will happen the week before and I won't be able to find anyone else to step in. I'd feel like a huge bitch backing out b/c of this, but at the same time, I have to consider the possibility that she may have to back out in the weeks before, leaving us with no photographer.
What would you do in this situation? Would you continue with her and hope that nothing happens? Would you get your deposit back? I really have no experience with pregnancy, so I don't have a clue what it's like to be 7 months pregnant sans any problems. I know there are risks with any photographer, but I feel like this is a bigger gamble than most situations.
Ultimately, I don't want to find another photographer, but should I just to keep my own sanity? I'm already having issues with some of my other vendors, so I feel like this is going to stress me out even more.
